A Conversation with Doug Foy

Doug Foy, the state's environmental "field marshal" and former Conservation Law Foundation president, recently resigned from his post as secretary of Commonwealth Development.

His three-year tenure was characterized by disagreements and a lack of support from Romney on some of his key initiatives, including his nine-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative to limit emissions from power plants.

Then in October, Romney asked Foy to recuse himself from further talks on the Outer Brewster LNG proposal after learning of his stock interest in the AES Corporation.

Romney bid farewell to Foy with a nod of approval for his smart growth housing initiative to the tune of a $517 million grant for the project. Foy reflects on his legacy, and shares environmental policy advice for the future administration.
